These Gorgeous Classical Concerts By Candlelight Are Coming To Minneapolis

Listening to classical music by candlelight in a beautiful setting sounds like the peaceful haven we all need.

Calm your mind and experience classical music in a new light with these sensational concerts in some of Minneapolis’ most historic and stunning venues. The Granada Theater, once an iconic theater from the silent film era, is now a contemporary Spanish-Revival-style Uptown entertainment hub. Built in 1927 and inspired by outdoor theatre, this venue has remnants of its classic Churrigueresque style, named for José Benito de Churriguera (1665–1725), a Spanish architect who first used the style on churches.

The Candlelight series is also coming to the Calvary Baptist Church where atmosphere meets Chopin’s classics. Established in 1886, this historical venue is part of the densely diverse Whittier neighborhood nicknamed “the international neighborhood” by locals. Concerts will be held at this ever-changing, yet important part of the community this Spring.

Finally, listen to candlelit classics under the stars, starting in June, at the Leopold Mississippi Gardens, with 4.98 acres of beautiful gardens nestled along the Mississippi River that offer stunning panoramic views. The seating will also adhere to safe distancing and safety regulations put in place.

Starting in Spring 2021, this concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Beethoven to Chopin.
